Ancient Holy Ground


The wind was bitter this afternoon, but it served to chase the rain away, and the beauty of the remaining clouds racing across the sky more than made up for the shivering. St. Peter’s Church stands on ancient holy ground just on the other side of Coombe Wood, so is only a short walk from home, a perfect destination for a cold day. I like the thought that people have come to this place for centuries, possibly millennia, seeking divine connection. The sense of peace is profound.
